Hyderabad: After landslide victory in Andhra Pradesh assembly election, YSR Congress party president Jagan Mohan Reddy was elected as leader of the legislature party on Saturday.
At a meeting in Amaravati, party MLA Botcha Satya Narayana proposed the resolution and other senior leaders Dharmana Prasad Rao and Buggana Rakendranath Reddy supported the resolution. The lawmakers will soon submit the copy of the resolution to governor ESL Narasimhan in Hyderabad.
After constitutional formalities, Narasimhan will ask Jagan to form the government. The YSRCP chief has decided to take the oath on May 30.
After being elected head of the legislature party, Jagan said, "We have to fix the target to win the 2024 elections from now itself. We have to give good governance to the people and win everyone's support."
Hitting out at TDP, the leader said, "Naidu's party took away our 23 MLAs and three MPs with money and political power. But today they stand nowhere."
Jagan will arrive in Hyderabad by evening and meet governor Narasimhan and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao as courtesy call. The two leaders are likely to discuss their role and plan of action in national politics.
The YSRCP chief will go to Delhi on Sunday and meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the afternoon.
